Kobe plays in season opener
OCT 30, 2012 6:51p ET
Kobe Bryant announced on his Facebook page that he was "feeling good enough to play" and would be in the Lakers' lineup.
Earlier today, Bryant said he was "85%" sure he would play after missing more than a week with a bruised foot. Jodie Meeks was expected to be in the starting lineup had Bryant sat out tonight's game.
The Mavericks are without both Dirk Nowitzki and Chris Kaman.
